Whether he plays a down or not this season, wideout Jett Jasper is viewed as an important member of the Warriors. A UH coach said there was never any doubt that Jasper would be included in the 105-player roster for training camp. Jasper is praised widely as being a "good teammate."
Jasper's diligence extends beyond football. He is a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee that helps newcomers and serves as a liaison to the administration. The SAAC helped install bicycle air stations, cleaned Manoa pond, and started a read-to-me program at elementary schools. The SAAC recently installed permanent umbrellas stands outside the weight room.
Jasper was a volunteer host during the Warriors' Junior Day the past semester.
Jasper earned a bachelor's degree the past December, and he is taking classes toward a master's degree. One other thing: As a walk-on, he pays the student-activity fee.

It's sad to hear about former Warrior receiver and coach Craig Stutzmann's situation. Stutz is a good guy, and a good coach, and I'm sure he'll bounce back.
Here's one take: Stutzmann.
Although the charge is serious, the "resignation" is surprising because there's supposed to be a presumption of innocence until a verdict is reached, and any action probably could have waited until after next month's court hearing.
